Far from the 90’s stereotypes of Shoreditch and Bethnal Green being full of run down flats, the modern reality is much more attractive to both renters and buyers.
Shoreditch is now home to some of the most modern and luxurious homes in the city, with exceptional amenities and incredible city views. Take for this example this unparalleled 3 bedroomed penthouse. Atop the 48th floor of the Principal Tower development, this 3 bedroomed paradise is spread across two floors with a 180 degree view of the city around you. You’ll absorb the splendor of this location with floor to ceiling windows, as the sunlight pours in and warms your skin.
Each apartment has been designed to maximise both the aesthetic and physical experience. The Herringbone oak floors, neutral walls and muted colour palattes throughout are intentionally placed. The quiet confidence in the design is obvious, it’s not showy, it’s not brash at any point, it simply… is. The level of luxury you experience in the Tower increases with each floor that the elevator climbs until you reach the very top, the pinnacle of splendor.
With all of this said, this incredible property doesn’t stand alone atop a mountain, detached from the world around it. It takes in the full spectrum of London’s beauty, and concentrates it into one location so you can enjoy everything at once. Within the building you’ll find a round the clock conceirge service, lap pool, state of the art gym, cinema and private spa.
Shoreditch was best known for its warehouse district, and now, the warehouses have become incredible homes. These characterful buildings bring the history of the area into the new day, having flourished with the investments without losing any of their charm. Galaxy House is just one such conversion, which makes the most of the industrial features of Shoreditch’s history whilst also offering luxury to its owner. Perched on the rear side of the building, this loft apartment is quieter and more peaceful, the perfect haven without ever leaving the city.
Sprawling over 925 square feet, this apartment would make the perfect home or pied-a-terre for any discerning City buyer looking for a character property. Leonard Street is located in between City Road and Tabernacle Street, the apartment offers quick and convenient access into the Square Mile, and is just south of Old Street Station which offers Northern Line tube and mainline train services.
When talking about newly trendy London areas, we simply can’t forget to focus on Bethnal Green.
The apartments in this area aren’t yet as pricey as their Shoreditch counterparts, but this is certain to change before too long. With homes looking out across the River Thames, the South Bank and the city of London, Bethnal Green has become an undisputed gem of the London property scene.
You can find spacious, open plan living spaces alongside the river for less than £2million, a minor miracle given the amenities and views around. In this particular property, the french windows open wide to let in the breeze and noise of London, so you can enjoy the beauty of the city from the comfort of your sofa.
The conversion of this property has been done with comfort and convenience in mind. Each bedroom’s dedicated bathroom is bright and inviting with only the most modern fittings, whilst the combined kitchen and dining space makes hosting dinner parties almost effortless.
You’re so close to the hum of central London but you’re still in your own paradisical bubble, a beautiful juxtaposition of terms we love being able to put together.
